Life is eventful

I have been busy at work and at play.  I have been getting into photography lately and am loving it.  Maybe that will be a career choice for me one day…

Here are a couple of pics from Shelby’s bridals yesterday.

The foundation is up on our house and I’ve been doing a little stress eating.  We went out on Friday night for my friend Hayden’s birthday celebration.  It was on a party bus that took you to different clubs and bars downtown.  You could bring your own alcohol and drink and ride on the bus.  It was awesome.  I could have just stayed on the bus the whole time! 

I am so wanting to start my own business and have been getting into photography so maybe something will come of that.  This week shouldn’t be too bad, we only have one surgery on Thursday.  I have decided that I want to do more with my life than just have jobs to pay the bills.  I want a career and I want to enjoy it.

Those are my thoughts for the moment.  Hope everyone enjoys the last few hours of their weekend!

“I don’t brag I mostly boast”

I was on my way home from Trader Joe’s today and I was thinking about how good my life is.  I have a wonderful husband, a job, we are building a house, I have good friends and I have some money in savings. 

I am completely thankful for these things and happy I am taking care of myself so that I can enjoy them. 

Today I am cleaning around the apartment and getting ready for a relaxing weekend.  The husband will be off with the guys for a Bachelor’s weekend for our neighbor/the husband’s coworker and friend.  I am sticking around here and hopefully doing something tomorrow night for the bachelorette.

So I am taking it easy and doing some yoga this weekend and focusing on catching up around here. 

What are you happy with in your life and what are your weekend plans?

What was I thinking?

Ok the challenge is over.  I couldn’t take it anymore.  I was supposed to not go grocery shopping for 5 weeks.  Well…

Fruit goes bad!  I can’t live without fresh fruit so I had to go today.  I made it about 2 weeks without shopping for that.   I have been trying to save money by buying in bulk and it has worked until the fruit ran out.  So the moral of that story is…

If you wanna save money on groceries, buy meat and fish in bulk and fresh fruit every one or two weeks.  I bought frozen fruit, but it isn’t as easy to get to.  I don’t want to wait for the fruit to thaw.  I’d rather go for fresh fruit than frozen anyday.

Things have been busy and sad over here lately.   With the death of the husband’s grandma, the visitation, and the funeral, I have been super sad.  It’s time to move on though.  She would want us to be happy and that’s how I’m going to be!

On a good note, the scale said I am down another pound this morning.  We’ll see how much I really weigh at WI tomorrow.  This is my second plateau of my WW journey and I am ready to push through it to goal.

I went to Food Lion today to get drinks and then TJ’s to get lots of yummy fruit!  I am glad the husband likes fresh fruit too!  I need to get more healthy stuff in the boy 🙂

While at TJ’s I saw Daffodil bulbs on sale.  They were only $1.99 I wanna say and they will definately perk up things around here.  It’s such a sunny and beautiful day out!  I hear there is going to be some rain this weekend.  Booooo…

I haven’t had a chance to eat breakfast yet because I have been so busy.  I think today is going to be a snacky day and then dinner tonight.  We are going to eat in tonight or tomorrow night since we have eaten out a lot this week due to us being busy bees!

I leave you with a pic of my new plant!  I’m off to clean!

Just got back from the hospital

They just moved the husband’s grandma from ICU to a regular hospital room.  They have done all they can do and basically have given up.  (I know that sounds awful,  but that’s what I feel like)  We will be going there again tomorrow.  Please keep her in your prayers.

Lazy Saturday

WI was this morning: down 1 pound! WOOP! I am getting closer and closer to goal.  Hopefully I won’t plateau for a third time and I can lose those last couple of pounds in the next few weeks. 

Today is going to be a lazy Saturday, which I absolutely love.  I love having no plans on weekends.  But, somehow, the hours get filled up quickly.  I think we are going to see the husband’s grandma in the hospital again tonight.  We went to cheesecake factory last night after visiting with her and I am trying to split the bites up over the weekend.  I got Chocolate Oreo Mudslide.  It is amazing.  It has been talking to me all morning, but I am not giving in yet!!

The builder wants to meet with us to show us where he is clearing the woods behind the lot.  I am so ready to see progress on the house.  I am very impatient! :0 

Last night we had BBQ chicken pizza and it was amazing!  I will post the recipe a bit later today.  Right now I am going to sit in comfy clothes and watch CMT videos.  Hope everyone has a good Saturday!!

5 week challenge: 1/5

Ok I made it through my first week!  I am not going to the grocery store today.  I am not!  Ok, I just had to repeat that to myself a few times.  Last night we caught up on John and Kate plus 8 and The Real World.  I haven’t watched a season of that in years, but we both got into it for this season.  Man, I love my DVR!

I should be getting a call from the builder today.  He should have the plans and start digging on our house next week! Yay! And it’s about time.  The husband has been a sicky all week and his grandma is not doing so hot in the hospital. 😦

I am so glad that today is Friday!  I have had such a long long week.  We had to be at work for early surgeries this week and we have another one Monday.  I swear, people must have gotten Lasik as a Christmas present!

I am so looking forward to a low key weekend.  We are probably staying in tonight and making a pizza then going to visit the husband’s grandma in the hospital.  We don’t have much else going on besides church on Sunday.  Oh yeah, and I am going back to my college and picking up last year’s yearbook.  I miss that place sometimes.  Graduation was bittersweet.

I am going to try to get some recipes up this weekend.  Other than that, I am doing the happy Friday dance!

What a pretty day…

We went to church this morning.  The weather is absolutely beautiful!  Pretty, sunny days can really put you in a good mood.  I am about to make some lunch and  pick up around the apartment.  Tonight we are going to get me a BJ’s membership so we can save some money for the new house.  Then we are going to to TGI Fridays for Brandon (the husband’s) Aunt’s birthday.  I absolutely loathe this restaurant, but hey, it’s not my birthday.  I’ll update you on what I’m going to have once I do some research!
